By Jeff Gau, Marco CEO – Sometimes I think we overcomplicate leadership. We create expectations for ourselves and others that can overwhelm even the best of us.
The art of leading is a pretty simple equation: People + Money = Leadership (P+M=L).
The money side of leadership is actually easier to learn than the people part. And all leaders can benefit from honing their skills in this area.
I wasn’t a numbers guy, but I had to become one. Early on, I learned from Gary Marsden, my predecessor and co-founder of Marco, and I have done the same for others.
There are plenty of people who know the numbers. Seek them out so you can understand them better.
